SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) - Savannah State University officials say the school has been given a five-year $1.4 million grant to prepare future science, technology, engineering and mathematics teachers.

Officials said in a statement that the school was awarded the grant from the one of the National Science Foundation’s teacher scholarship programs. University officials say the grant is meant to prepare teachers to work in high-need middle and high school classrooms and at the university expects the grant to help prepare at least 28 future educators.

C. Reynold Verret, provost and vice president for academic affairs at Savannah State says the grant program will help address a critical workforce shortage.
